Hello everyone, I'm writing this post early because as you read this, I'm in Alaska! Well, actually on Royal Caribbean Explorer of the Seas cruise ship teaching Hope's Journey wild goose chase quilt. I hope I'll have some pretty photos to share.
Question of the Week...What is your favorite brand of rulers?
My absolute favorite brand is Olfa Frosted. I prefer it because of the frosted backing that helps to keep the ruler stable while I cut, and because of the very thin black lines for accurate measurements.
Short answer, more on rulers next week....
As each week goes by, I'm having lots of little pieces left over. While some are perfect for a 3" mini, others have to wait until the right project comes along. Lisa's pattern is the perfect time to use lots of random squares. Most of you probably toss these little tidbits, but they hang around on my sewing or cutting table, waiting patiently. Very rarely do I throw them away.
It's almost an obsession to save them...almost.
My camera angle is distorting the sizes somewhat, or is it the seam allowance,
but the corners look huge! lol
I've put some pinks in from the upcoming Grace's Garden along with a favorite pink from Lizzie's Legacy, then tossed in some squares of Hope's Journey, Rachel Remembered and one square from Eliza's Indigo. Scrappy fun!
for the link to Lisa's blog and the pattern and her tips.
Be sure to stop by my friends' blogs to see what they are up to. Links below.
Aren't they cute?
The mini this time quick and easy, and yes from leftovers.
Since I pieced the star points using the connector method in the pattern, I had 8 sets of triangle leftovers from the blue and cream prints. I stitched the triangles together using a scant seam, pressed to the dark and trimmed the unit to 1 1/2" square. Cut 3 blue squares 1 1/2". Sew together as shown.
Block should measure 3 1/2" for a 3" finished block.
Have a wonderful week. I hope I can post to Instagram and Facebook while cruising.
Until next time ~
will be missing these cuties
